“still full”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

ate here and they gave us so much food we didn't even put a dent in it.The only downside was the people doing renos in the same room we were eating in

“Restaurant and Motel across Rte 11”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is an interesting combo. I saw the Super 8 sign on Rte 81 as I was driving along, getting tired, and hungry. Little did I know of this fantastic diner across the road. I think diner is a misnomer in the sense of the size of the place. I bet this restaurant would seat 100; how many diners you know would seat 100 people, primarily in booths? The menu was one of some length; I'm thinking perhaps 15 specials as well...and they call this a diner!!!

I did this combo twice...the first on my trip north July 31st...and liking the combo so much...on my return trip south on August 12th. I think you know I'm going to angle my trip next July so I get this combo again...two times if I am lucky!!

Oh, and the Super 8 offered typically what you would expect: a great comfortable room, away from the traffic noise...with a great comp breakfast in the morning to get me on my way.

“Always great everytime I stop in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is my top favorite restaurant. Service is always good and the food even better. I don't get to stop in as much as I use to do to living further away, but when I can, I'm excited to know that I'm going to get a good meal. Best open face hot roast beef sandwiches!!

“Best food on trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Great find while on the road. Busy but efficient - very good food at fair price. Can't wait to travel through area and eat there again.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Breakfast was hot and good for a diner and not real expensive; asked for a few minutes to view the menu--started to think the waitress had forgotten us; would have breakfast there again
